Exhibition Overview

Andrei Molodkin is an internationally recognized contemporary Russian artist engaged in deconstructing the economic realities of geopolitical praxis. Consisting of his monumental ballpoint-pen drawings and his three-dimensional constructions filled with crude oil, Molodkin's exhibition CRUDE effectively articulates the space between people's peaceful, democratic aspirations and the unending conflicts perpetuated by oil-politics. CRUDE is a laboratory environment that radicalizes the dynamic between the artwork and the viewer.
